eMirror DIY with pics and Vid

Ok i purchased this module for my car a few months back and got sent the wrong one and had to return it for a e46 instead of a e39 module, I recieved it today and fitted it.
Overall time taken: 30 mins
Difficulty: medium


Ok 1st I got the kit out the jiffy envelope and read instructions




Then I got some tools (screwdrivers, pliers, cutters,) and went out to the car

1st remove glove box by opening it and removing 6 screws, 3 along front edge and 2 behind the straps that hold it from dropping down and 1 on bottom of glove box underside




When I had removed glovebox and dropped it down to bottom of the footwell I could see all this



I then had to remove the middle plug on the main module pictures here with red arrow



Disconnected the plug and removed its casing by sliding a small screwdriver down into its clip



seperated clip into two sides, both sides had numbers showing pin number for each side



I then installed the supplied clips onto 3 wires as follows

Pin 10 brown/black cable
Pin 47 red/violet cable
Pin 9 white/red/yellow cable

I then plugged in the 3 cables from the module into the clips
brown on module = brown/black
red on module = red/violet
white on module = white/red/yellow

I then reassembled plug and connected it back where it came from



I had a sneaky look at whats inside the module and found one side just has a chip and the other has various resistors and diodes looks a bit complicated but I guess could be copied

Next up I had to remove this plug and its casing




I added two crimp connectors onto pin 12 and pin 1 from this plug and reasembled plug housing and plugged back in



Last picture shows the module and all its wires plugged in, the module sits in one of the empty slots and the wires i've tucked away underneath



I reasembled the glove box and tested it and took a video

im a little confused...this is to enable the motorized mirrors to go up when you lock the car? or is this for the windows to go up when you press the lock button?

Its just for the mirrors to go up and down when you lock and unlock the car, the video shows me using the total closure (oem feature) as I had to close the car up as i was finished inside

So, if you press and hold the lock button on the key the windows won't close?

I thought this was an universal feature...
